The Robins:

Frome are a very dangerous side with plenty of attacking fire power. Forwards James Ollie and George Rigg provide plenty, as does captain Jon Davies, who has surpassed 200 games for the club. Ex Farm men include former skipper Jamie Adams and flying fullback Tyler Ashmead.

The Farm:

Farm really need some points and will be welcome of the postponements of late as they look to get players back fit. The young stars took the plaudits last time out with goals from teenagers Luco Ponsillo and Will Gallagher. Farm will hope for positive fitness news on Mason Winter and a return from suspension for Frankie Artus.

The Form:

Neither side take a great deal of form into this one. The home side had 3 points snatched by two late goals last time out and haven’t won in 4. Farm’s miserable post Christmas run has left them without a win in 5 and in need of some points rather quickly.
